The .bit Revolution Begins!
I know the crypto/digital freedom fighters out there are wondering how in the world will they get to see the next daily update of Quantum Vibe after the forces of tyranny seize control of the Internet's domain name system. Well fear not. Michael W Dean of Freedom Feens told us about a decentralized domain naming system which makes use of a bitcoin like technology called namecoin. You may have seen a reference to it earlier this week on Quantum Vibe.
This distributed registry resolves Internet addresses for domains ending in .bit. Now, you can access the bigheadpress.com and quantumvibe.com websites using the names bigheadpress.bit and quantumvibe.bit.
If you want to try it out, you can download the free firefox plugin, freespeechme, from here.

The Transcript For This Page
Stone is in Nicole's hotel room, seated on the bed as she brings up Nicole's search history on the room Screen. The history shows a short list, which includes the names Claud Southend, The Lucky Duck Club, the Bully Goat Tavern, and Rando Greene.
Stone is in the Lucky Duck Club, talking to a bartender. She is showing an image of Nicole, but the bartender doesn't seem to recognize her.
Stone is in the Bully Goat Tavern. It's less crowded now, but there are still some patrons in the background. She's talking with the bartender, who does recognize Nicole's image.
One of the patrons, a rough-looking male, has walked up to Stone, shouting something while he angrily shoves her. Some of the other patrons look on with anticipation.
Stone effortlessly lifts the ruffian by his groin. His face reveals his agony. The other patrons are saucer-eyed.
Stone casually tosses the ruffian over her shoulder. The other patrons shy away.
In the Offworld Lounge, Stone scans the table where Nicole and Rando had been sitting with her visor.
As Stone walks down the street, she holds a palm alongside her face, indicating she is making a tel call.
Stone: So far I have two subjects, a journo and a publicist. I suspect our guy is the latter, but I'll be looking into both of them.
